Druvaa Insync v3 Now Available On Linux Platform

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Druvaa, a provider of state of the art data safeguarding and back up solutions, recently announced the much awaited commercial availability of the Druvaa Insync version 3 on the Linux Platform. The Druvaa Insync is a completely mechanized laptop backing application, which helps companies safeguard its data for both on-site and off-site workers.

Its main selling points are the uncomplicated backup procedure, point-in-time restoration, and its flagship data deduplication technology, that helps speeding up the back process by at least ten times.
In the new Linux version, the graphical user interface is unchanged. Also, all the distinctive qualities of the Druvaa Insync software, that sets it apart from its counterparts, are also retained. These include the renowned data deduplication technique, nonstop looped data safeguards, enhanced WAN utilization, search-based restorations for speedy recovery of data and ‘bare-metal’ restores, which help users back up their complete PC and recreate it from naught.
The patent pending data deduplication technique cuts down backup time by over 90 percent, thus saving costs in bandwidth and storage. Utilizing the WAN with minimum redundancy also enables a faster back up process especially for off-site employees. The newly launched Linux version is also a cross platform and is compatible with both Linux and Windows users.
The scope of a product like the Druvaa Insync is immense, with about 50 million employees working from off-site locations in the U.S. alone. These workers generally access their emails, send in updated work and work on financial information from a location other than their work desks and almost 70 percent of this workforce does not plan a backup while they are away from it. Plus, statistical data suggests that over 600,000 laptops are lost annually in U.S. airports. With InSync, these users can take speedy laptop backups in a simple and completely mechanized manner.
The company estimates that over 80 percent of corporate data is recreated across users. With its innovative data deduplication application, users can save just one cope of duplicated data, which in turn speeds up backup processes and cuts down bandwidth and storage costs. With the WAN Optimization technique, backups can be done even over virtual private networks (VPN) and a less than optimal WAN one.
